A HOME FOR
THE PERFORMING SPIRIT
A word from the founder, Casimar Valles
When we created our LLC in 2017, the intention was clear: create a program that will give kids in urban communities opportunities beyond their neighborhoods.
Through sponsorships, talent, and determination, our students are given tools to understand and apply professionalism. Our students take our classes not only for fun but for chance to grow and experience a world outside of their neighborhoods.
Haus kids have marched and commanded crowds for women's rights, LGBT liberties, and racial equality. They have performed at smaller events hosted by local schools and activist cites. Haus Kids have a responsibility to understand their power, voice, and talent to influence for the greater good.
At the haus...
we approach eduction with the understanding that the most effective learning happens when the students and teachers are smiling.
Teachers are encouraged to explore non traditional methods of instruction to ensure class growth. If we have to lose a day of instruction because its looking like the class needs team build, then we will team build and the class will be learn faster and retain the information better.
We listen! Our kids are honest. They love to perform but they want to be doctors, teachers, and so much more. Our focus is of course to provide QUALITY teaching, but we also focus on developing them as learners, so they can not only be great performers, but fantastic students in their traditional class room settings.
Our style of education is design for kids to learn at their max potential, for teachers to feel like they making a difference, and all of this will result with amazing performances and proud families.
Bringing in Fitness
Incorporating fitness into The Haus is our way of giving the same opportunities that we give to children to adults.
Our community is amongst the heights when it comes to obesity and asthma. That combination has created a realm where we are all taught that we need to sit down because our body aches or our lungs can't take it... but thats simply not true.
Just because you're "heavy" does not mean you can not enjoy yourself. Losing weight also does not need to be a scary process. Same thing goes for asthmatics. Having asthma does not mean you can not enjoy movement. That goes for all ages, genders or gender non-conforming, and those with pre-existing conditions, mental or physical.
So long as you are safe and in a safe space where you can move, you should move. Coming from the South Bronx, our founder understands the struggle is real. He also understands that every step leads to another.
